Botanicals BOM and Embroidery Workshop begins May 1 in the May issue of The Quilt Pattern Magazine. www.quiltpatternmagazine.com. For Stone Cottage Design-Quilts followers use secret code: SCD to receive a special subscription price. www.quiltpatternmagazine.com/program/S/?D=SCD.
This is a 12-month appliqué BOM combined with a home sewing machine embroidery workshop using Presencia™ Perle Cotton #16 in the top of the machine. While the embroidery accents may be accomplished using ordinary thread, the #16 perle cotton will add textural dimension to your blocks and also add a new tool to your quilting toolbox. See the Materials List for information on where to find Presencia™ Perle Cotton #16. You may also choose to add the embroidery by hand if so desired. Showcased are two quilts, each using nine of the twelve blocks. Find Presencia™ Perle Cotton #16, 5 gm balls, at www.redworkplus.com/
Reminiscent of vintage watercolor floral prints from the 1800s, Antique Botanicals uses a warm, creamy batik for the background with earth tone batiks for the frames. Tropical Botanicals uses a watery, aqua batik for the background with the bright, cool colors of the tropics for the frames.
